Honesty without Judgment
So I was on the phone with a client earlier this week and we were in a wonderful flow and talking about how to continue that flow throughout her week.
She got quiet.
Then she said, “Jennifer I have to be honest with you. I talk a good game. I come up with all kinds of amazing ideas; I love what we come up with during the sessions. But then, I just don’t do them. No wonder I can’t stay in the flow.”
In that moment, she was completely honest and vulnerable.
Her honesty led us into a deeper conversation about how she judges herself and how the word “should” is a common word repeated over and over and over in her mind. So she stops listening and rebels against doing anything, even the ‘something’ that would be helpful. This opened the door to some beautiful releasing and I look forward to hearing from her next time about the affect on her ability to stay in her forward momentum, her flow.
However, it got me thinking.
How often have I thought, “This (insert any personal development/law of attraction technique) isn’t working for me. I’m so tired. I’ve been trying for so long. When am I finally going to reap the benefits?” If I were really honest, I’d admit to myself that all I had done was read about the technique, try it for a while but then my more typical behaviors and thoughts slowly crept back in.
What was amazing to me about asking these questions was that I met them from a place of complete openness. No judgment. From that place, the answer showed me, like a laser, the thought habits that were not in alignment with what I wanted in a specific area of my business.
Instead of embarrassment and shame, I felt liberated. I could literally feel the power possible as I allow my thoughts and feelings to come more in alignment with what I am seeking.
Ready for your own liberation? Ask yourself, without judgment:
How much of the time am I thinking thoughts and feeling feelings that are in alignment with the energy of what I want?
How much do I say I want prosperity and yet I spend the majority of my day thinking thoughts about scarcity?
